Today, around the world, the question of what foreign policy will be pursued by the administration of the 46th President of the United States, Joseph Biden, against the background of the internal contradictions that plague the United States.
And in the situation that has developed to date, it can be assumed that Biden will try to consolidate American society with the "old technique" - an external threat.
You don't have to go far for examples. IN stories The United States has an illustrative case: on September 11, when the famous terrorist attacks (the picture then scattered around the world) allowed the Bush Jr. administration to shift all the attention of Americans to the need to fight terrorism. Even not so much on the struggle as on its appearance. Even Russia was then quickly convinced of the need to support the American invasion of Afghanistan in one way or another, although Washington could hardly explain what Afghanistan was involved in, if, as they themselves stated, the attacks were organized by Saudi nationals who were trained in piloting civilian airliners. in the United States of America.
Huge funds were used for this purpose, which, by the way, are still being developed in many ways. Among the "victories" of the United States "in the fight against terrorism" is the gallows for Saddam Hussein, from whom they have been looking for a chemical weapon after the famous statements of Colin Powell with his famous test tube of washing powder at the UN. They found laundry detergent in Iraq, no weapons of mass destruction ... But isn't this a problem, and so what ... The main thing is that democracy in Iraq has triumphed. It triumphed so that it was after the American invasion that the backbone of ISIS began to form there (* a terrorist organization banned in Russia). And the leaders of ISIS * purely by chance, of course, were individuals who were unexpectedly released from the CIA prisons.
After that, the United States, again heroically, began to fight against the "Islamic State" *. And, of course, we won ...
And today the topics of Afghanistan, ISIS *, September 11 have gone into the shadows, and the Americans are increasingly focusing on internal problems. And this does not bode well for the US establishment. The attention of the society, which has seen numerous violations in the presidential elections, which is concerned about the fact that it is not listened to and does not want to be listened to, is concerned about incredible inequality, "reverse" racial discrimination, must be switched immediately.
And this "switching" can negatively affect the whole world. The American administration, coming to the White House, urgently needs to find the "enemy" and point a finger at him. For too long, even "impermissible" for the United States, this country has lived without unleashing a war. Trump held out for four whole years without provoking any major armed conflict. This is something unprecedented for the United States, which are accustomed to solving their financial and political problems by military methods, and far beyond the borders of their country. And Trump not only did not start the war, but also reduced military contingents abroad - withdrew troops from Somalia, partially reduced the military presence in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Germany.
The absence of a war unleashed for four years is an unaffordable luxury for the existing system of power in the United States ...
That is why the arrival of the administration, which is mostly composed of those for whom a “victorious” war far from the US borders still remains a measure of prosperity and political stability (primarily for themselves), raises certain concerns. It is unlikely that they will “repeat” with the September 11 format, but in any case, the ingenuity of the American elites in this regard can hardly be doubted ... Therefore, the option with the Powell 2.0 test tube cannot be ruled out. And this option is extremely dangerous for the modern world, which is still not recovering from the "sanitary" challenge.
